We Support Rockford Area Schools

Students benefit every day – thanks to the generous donations and participation in our fundraising events!


Our Purpose

SUPPORTING THE ESSENTIALS
Provide funds to cover basic classroom expenses – replacing textbooks and outdated classroom equipment, or providing fundamental resources like graphing calculators and industrial tech hand tools.

 

PROMOTING INNOVATION
Provide grants for teachers to boost their impact with unique learning opportunities such as EKG sensors for a biology class, materials to grow straw bale gardens, or new ideas for alternative seating.

 

EXPAND LEARNING THROUGH ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS
Support programs that go beyond the basics to improve the quality of education for our students, including: art, agriculture, industrial tech, business, EXCEL gifted & talented and much more!

We have 2 Additional Roles…

PARENT & TEACHER ORGANIZATION (PTO)
The Rockford Education Foundation has been serving as our local PTO since Fall 2014. We manage fundraisers like the Catalog Fundraiser and Bingo Nights, put on events such as the Teacher Appreciation Lunch and provide services like the Parent Directory and classroom wish lists. 

ROCKFORD ALUMNI ASSOCIATION
The Rockford Education Foundation started the Rockford Alumni Association in 2015 in collaboration with the All School Reunion Committee. District Alumni are a vital and active part of the community of learning in Rockford Area Schools. We are actively working to collect graduate information from 1976-2016. We send out Alumni E-Newsletters and help announce reunions.
